I nearly didn’t write a post for the powder room, but then I thought it was mean-spirited to deprive you of these inspiring pictures. Here’s my top 5.
Our powder room is the only bathroom on the ground floor. It will be for guests, but it will also be used by the youngest little pig who will sleep in the downstairs bedroom. Dangerous, I know. I’m trying to forget about smelly socks, and worse, in order to plan a guest-worthy powder room.
Here is the basic layout we are working with:
I’m going to try and tie the laundry and powder room together in terms of colour, although the laundry will have a Laminex bench top while the powder room is going posh with Caesarstone.
I tried some combinations that included a decorative floor tile, but it all looked too busy. This mood board shows:
- Travertine white honed tile (National Tiles) – I need to find something similar from one of our builder’s tile suppliers.
- Feather Dawn paint. (I dabbled with Grey Pebble this time, but it looked too dark.)
- Clamshell Caesarstone vanity top.
- Polar white Laminex.
- White wall tile. (Standard issue, matt surface.)
- Builder supplied mirror and basin.
- Some very cute wooden dots that you can hang clothes and towels on from Muuto.
In order to bring the laundry and powder room together, I now think I’ll have to modify my laundry plan a bit. The floor tiles are too dark.
Phew. That’s it for tiled rooms. I’m fully prepared for my “pre start” meeting now. I will be happily swayed by good advice from the builder’s interior designer, but it will be for the smaller details. The basic mood/colour/theme for the bathrooms, laundry and kitchen is established. This should help me avoid making any on-the-spot decisions that I later regret.
